My name is Jana Huck. I live in Luebeck, Germany. I started knitting when I searched for something that I still could do while being sick and it has become a passion. I almost started designing right from the beginning as I had no patience for following directions. I always need a challenge when I knit. I love to have an idea and to think: Yes, this would be nice but it is impossible to do. Then I find a way to do it. Whenever I see hand-knitted items, I try to figure out in my head how they were knit. Of course, there are many, many knitwear designers that I admire and to relax, I now love to work from their patterns.
I feel that it is very fulfilling to write down my ideas and share them with other knitters. Hooray for the internet which is making this so easy!
I have been knitting for a few years now. I am still in awe by the many possibilities. I definitely do not knit fast enough. ;)
